Failed Russian Hack Attempt of Anti-Putin Senator

Russian hackers trying to influence the 2018 elections made an unsuccessful attempt to breach the computer system of Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, one of this fall's most vulnerable Democrats.


The Daily Beast reported that McCaskill is the first known target of the Kremlin's plot to interfere in this fall's midterm elections after targeting the U.S. in the 2016 presidential election.


...


"Russia continues to engage in cyber warfare against our democracy. I will continue to speak out and press to hold them accountable," McCaskill said in a statement. "While this attack was not successful, it is outrageous that they think they can get away with this. I will not be intimidated. I've said it before and I will say it again, Putin is a thug and a bully."


The Daily Beast reported that the attack was similar to one used by Russia's "Fancy Bear" hackers to access emails by John Podesta, the campaign chairman of 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton:


"The hackers sent forged notification emails to Senate targets claiming the target's Microsoft Exchange password had expired, and instructing them to change it. If the target clicked on the link, he or she was taken to a convincing replica of the U.S. Senate's Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) login page, a single sign-on point for e-mail and other services.

"As with the Podesta phishing, each Senate phishing email had a different link coded with the recipient's email address. That allowed the fake password-change webpage to display the user's email address when they arrived, making the site more convincing."


Trump tweeted earlier this week that if Russia did try to impact the 2018 elections, it would be to help Democrats — despite evidence that they intervened to hurt Clinton and help Trump two years ago. And now, this report has surfaced that Russian hackers were trying to breach the computers of one of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats — and not a Republican incumbent or candidate.

The president is set to chair a meeting of the National Security Council on Friday to discuss election security, which Democrats and even many Republicans have said they fear he is taking too lightly in the wake of his comments last week.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has said that the "warning lights are blinking red again" about future Russian cyberattacks and that "the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack."

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen also said last week at the Aspen Security Forum that it would be "foolish" to think Russia is not trying to influence the 2018 elections.

And FBI Director Christopher Wray also said last week in Aspen that Russia's attempts to undermine American democracy were ongoing.

It's reached a point where even established Republicans are saying that the Russians are definately attempting to hack our elections, all-the-while their party members block attempts to investigate cases of hacking and reduce the funding and staffing of our cyber terrorism protection agencies.

In semi-related news, Russian spy ships have begun to sit on our border... and this comes from sources from CNN to Fox...

The GOP loves Russia's attacks on our elections, as long as they're targeting Democrats - it saves them the trouble of having to do it themselves.

Every American war with conscription of the 20th century was started by a (D).

WWI - Woodrow Wilson (D)

WWII - FDR (D)

Korean - Harry S Truman (D)

Vietnam - LBJ (D)

EVIL RIGHT-WING WARMONGERS is a forced meme, all the wars you claim to hate are started by the oligarchs that you closeted anarchists love selling your souls to.

Democrats also started the Civil War ... and they weren't out there with "make love not war" signs during the Indian Wars neither.  The founder of that party, Andrew Jackson, wasn't exactly a peace-nick.

The Japanese and Germans will both tell you, that their attacks on the US were justified.  And there is evidence, that they were right.  Of course that would disrupt one of the most sacred America myths, right up there with Honest Abe.

I heard something about that a year ago.  Apparently, it's fairly routine.  They also send planes over You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, which is also routine.

And of course that one (overall minor) point means your camp aren't crazy warmongers. This isn't the court system, you can't get off on a bullshit technicality.

Try refuting the rest of my post, or even my general thesis, then come back.

I agree that Shiranu needs to up his game.  We can give him pointers, can't we?  Gotta do that cult deprogramming shit from the 80s, though against college political dogma, not against Satanism ... or is it?

Correct, but people who never learned history, thinks that utopia arrived with Bill Clinton and Barak Obama (end of cold war and opening up to gay marriage).  The competition between nations continues, no matter how you label it.

Comrades, our own fleet doesn't know our full potential. They will do everything possible to test us; but they will only test their own embarrassment. We will leave our fleet behind, we will pass through the American patrols, past their sonar nets, and lay off their largest city, and listen to their rock and roll... while we conduct missile drills. Then, and when we are finished, the only sound they will hear is our laughter, while we sail to Havana, where the sun is warm, and so is the comradeship. A great day, comrades. We sail into history.   -Capt. Marko Ramius:  The Hunt for Red October
